How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
The High School Placement Test, or HSPT, is used by many private and parochial high schools as a means of deciding whether a student is accepted into their school, and where they will be placed when accepted. Students in eighth grade take the test either in the fall or spring, and it always has five sections: language, math, quantitative skills, reading, and verbal skills. Depending on the school they are applying to, there may also be sections on science, mechanical aptitude, or the Catholic religion. In addition, individual schools can add their own sections to the exam to reflect their entry requirements. One way to try to help your child prepare for the HSPT is to get them a private tutor to work with. If you are seeking HSPT tutors near Anaheim, CA, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a tutor who can meet your child's needs.
Private tutors have numerous advantages over test preparation classes or students studying by themselves out of test books. For one thing, they are right there, focused only on your child's needs. If your child has a question, rather than waiting until the teacher has time for them, they can ask it immediately, get clarification, and move on to the next thing. If they need a little extra time in one area, and not so much time in another area they might feel comfortable with, their tutor can accommodate them. There will be no rushing through subjects your student doesn't understand, and no wasting time on things they do. Contact an educational director for help finding HSPT tutors in Anaheim.
